Ingredients

  • FOR THE COOKIES:
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour (Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot starch/flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons butter (or ghee)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk or coconut milk
  • FOR THE CHOCOLATE FILLING:
  • 6 pieces Baker’s Chocolate, unsweetened. (1.5 ounces) Hu Kitchen makes great paleo chocolate if you prefer not to use Baker’s.
  • 1/2 cup butter or ghee
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons egg white powder (we like Hoosier Hill Farms) or egg white protein powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Whisk together almond flour, arrowroot starch/flour and salt.
  3. Add melted butter, honey, vanilla extract and work into flour by hand until dough forms. Dough will be a bit sticky
  4. Let dough sit for 5 minutes.
  5. Roll out dough in-between two pieces of parchment paper so the dough does not stick to the rolling pin.
  6. Cut out cookies into desired shapes, lift and peel carefully and transfer to parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 -15 minutes. Cookies will be golden around the edges and soft. Remove baking tray and let cookies cool on tray for 10 minutes before transferring to plate. They will be soft when you remove them from the oven and will firm up a bit during the initial cooling process.
  8. FOR THE CHOCOLATE FROSTING:
  9. Melt Baker’s Chocolate in microwave safe bowl at 30 second intervals. When chocolate is melted, stir in honey until smooth. Add vanilla extract and combine again. Slowly pour sifted egg white powder, arrowroot starch and salt into chocolate mixture and blend. Frosting will be fairly thin at this point.
  10. Place in freezer for 15 minutes and the chocolate will harden up a bit, setting the icing. Blend the icing one last time until fluffy. (Will not require refrigeration again). Place into piping bags or spread onto cookies as desired. Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container, enjoy!
